It is said that Clara has “supernatural powers”. 
 
As an unknowing captive to her repressively religious mother (who profits from Clara doing God’s Work), Clara lives a secluded life within the Costa Rican jungle. The arrival of an attractive younger man causes a sexual awakening within her resulting in a new sense of self-awareness.
 
The natural world is finely tuned to Clara’s emotions and while she is renowned for her ability to heal, her sexual jealousy unleashes devastation. 
 
Sweeping this year’s Gulbaggen Film Awards (Swedish Oscars), the enchanting debut by Nathalie Álavarez Mesén’s is both daring and defiant with a bold vision drawing us into Clara's mystical world.
